In addition, it is examined how ports and shipyards can cope with the changes and with accommodating the emerging needs and vessels.The aim of subject paper is to detect and discuss investment opportunities in the LNG market, which is growing rapidly, challenges and necessary adaptations based on requirements and technical, institutional, logistics, financial aspects in combination with information of the energy market and potential of the Greek maritime industry.
